This 6 session class was designed to give students grades 3-6 a chance to design and create their own Recycle Robot. First we did a sketchbook and collected ideas about what a robot is or can be. Students brought in items for the project such as plastic bottles and food containers, corks, wire, cardboard tubes, buttons, lids...and we created a junkyard. With adult supervision they used hot glue to assemble their creations. The robots were spray painted silver/chrome.
